I am going with a mini pebble finish for my replaster project. As far as replacing the step and spa seat tile trim with new tile, how much more difficult (expensive) does this make the job as opposed to if the finish was going to be, say a plaster or plaster quartz finish? (My trim is a line of two rows of small squares - a fairly dated look, I know). Seems like so many gallery pics of pebble finished pools do not have any tile trim on the steps and shelves. I realize its an added expense to demo out the existing tile trim and reset the new replacement tile trim (about $15 a linear foot); but more than a couple PB doing bids for my replaster have tried to get me to go for a cleaner look - ie, no tile trim (existing water line tile to remain).
Just wondering if tile trim poses any build or quality issues for the PB in a pebble install. My assumption is that it would make no difference whether its a plaster or a pebble finish.
